SAN DIEGO, Sept. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Vet-Stem, Inc., the global leader in regenerative veterinary medicine, has licensed their proprietary stem cell technology to the Central Veterinary Research Laboratory (CVRL) of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. The license allows the laboratory to offer adipose- derived stem cell services to animal owners throughout the Middle East region. The ruler of Dubai and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates, Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, is one of the world's largest thoroughbred owners and sponsors the richest horse racing day, the Dubai World Cup. "The Central Veterinary Research Laboratory will be an excellent partner in bringing this technology from the US to the Middle East as they are already the most respected reference lab in the region," says Dr. Bob Harman, CEO of Vet-Stem. The CVRL intends to provide stem cell services for treatment of injuries in thoroughbred race horses, Arabian endurance horses, racing camels, and many other species. Vet-Stem's clients in the United States have already treated over 2500 horses and over 100 dogs with arthritis, tendon, and ligament injuries with a success rate of over 70% return to normal performance.
Vet-Stem delivers stem and other regenerative cells from a small fat
sample for use in treating an animal's own injuries. This clearly avoids
the controversy of using stem cells taken from embryos. This technology
provides the opportunity for regeneration and healing of tendon and
ligament injuries instead of the normal scarring process which reduces
performance and may increase chances of re-injury. Stem cells are delivered
to the veterinarian only 48 hours after a small fat sample is collected
from the injured animal. Priority overnight shipment has allowed Vet-Stem
to develop veterinary clients in all parts of
